Who says that Easter baskets have to be just for kids! Last week I wrote about your child’s Easter basket being for more than just Chocolate. We think that the adults should have a little something-something too. For the them, the Easter basket is all about delicacies. Be prepared to be indulged!Boozy Bunnies – TruffleTruffle created the perfect complement to the Easter basket for adults. These Easter sweets are inspired from some classic libations such as Mudslide, Pina Colada, Rum Punch and, my personal favorite, Mint Julep. Thank you Easter Bunny! Buy them here. Firecracker Chocolates – Remember as kids we used to love Pop Rocks. Well, CHUAO Chocolatier has combined these nostalgic candies with dark chocolate and the chipotle spice. What you get is an explosion (literally) of opposing tastes of the heat of the spices and the smoothness of the chocolate. Buy them directly from CHUAO Chocolatier. The Easter Bunny – An Easter basket would not be complete without an Easter Bunny. These Floppy Eared Bunnies from Anna Shea Chocolates (are they the cutest things or what!) are hand painted on either Milk or Dark Chocolate. Buy them directly from Anna Shea and while you are there, check out the rest of their Easter collection (love the Robin’s Eggs). WineTime Chocolate Bar – We have all heard the health benefits to a glass of red wine. Now you can get all that goodness in an anti-oxidant rich, high fiber bar that contains Resveratrol, the healthy ingredient found in grapes. They are available at Whole Foods or directly from Resvez.
